Argentinian provinces unite to build 2.5 GW of solar


From pv magazine Latam

The governors of 10 Argentinean provinces – the so-called “Norte Grande” group – have reached an agreement with members of the national government to build 2.5 GW of solar capacity, as part of a plan that could require an investment of up to $2.5 billion.

The regional governments said the plant will mostly serve regional energy distributors.

The 2,500 MW will be built across the provinces as follows:
